Causeway Bay Polo Ground was the place where Johnstone almost introduced the first Chinese female jockey and polo player to Hong Kong in 1920.
The Polo or Gymkhana Club announced a Gymkhana whereat the ladies of the Colony were to compete.
The stranger borrowed a pony and turned up at the practices on the Polo Ground at Causeway Bay.
She was a farmer’s daughter from North Queensland, rode astride and managed her pony in manly fashion.
She had no partner, so Mr Johnstone took her over the course.
Unfortunately, the Gymkhana was called off for lack of entries.
